According to The Daily Mirror, German striker Lukas Podolski has claimed that both Tottenham and Juventus are interested in signing him.
“I have been informed about both clubs’ interest,” Podolski told Poland’s Express newspaper. Ã¢â‚¬Å“That is very interesting for me.”
However, Podolski will not decide on his future until his Euro 2008 campaign with Germany is over, saying: “I really want to reach the semi-final. I will only start thinking about the future after that.”
Podolski has already admitted that he could possibly leave Bayern Munich after limited first-team opportunities at the Allianz Arena.
Podolski recently told Sky Sports: Ã¢â‚¬Å“I have made it clear to him (Klinsmann) that I am unhappy with my situation in Munich.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“He knows what he has in me. He has even said that he understands my problems. We shall sit down together after the Euro and see what happens.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Polish born Podolski joined Munich for around 10 million Euros in June 2006 from fellow German side FC Koln. The prolific goal scorer had attracted attention from top European clubs before the start of the 2006 World Cup and proved his worth by scoring 5 and being named Ã¢â‚¬Å“Best Young PlayerÃ¢â‚¬Â for his performances.
However, 2007 saw the arrival of world class strikers Luca Toni and Miroslav Klose, which reduced the chances of regular first-team football for Podolski. Despite this Podolski still managed 24 league appearances for Munich, although many were from the bench.
